The Botanical Gardens at Asheville

The Botanical Gardens at Asheville offers many helpful and informative classes designed to deepen your relationship to the region’s flora and fauna and to help you successfully landscape with natives. We enjoy relationships with many of the region’s naturalist experts. Thanks to their generosity, we can offer our community an in-depth and affordable look at one of the world’s most unique and diverse native habitats.

Our big Fall Plant and Rummage Sale will take place on Sept. 8 from from 9 am to 3 pm.

Between now and Sept. 5, we’re taking donations of rummage sale items during our regular Visitor Center hours (Sun. 12-4 pm, Mon.-Sat. 10 am to 4 pm). All proceeds benefit the Gardens. Garden tools and books always sell as well as other interesting items such as the ones already donated at right. The only thing we don’t take for the rummage sale is clothing. Clean out your attic and feed your inner philanthropist!


Natural Selections Nursery Native Plant Sale (in Weaverville)
Between August 16 and the last day of September, all plants will be $6.

North Carolina Native Plant Society – Western Chapter Hikes

SEPTEMBER 14 – Friday – IVESTOR GAP TRAIL “Hike this double-summit, ultra-scenic five-mile loop on the Art Loeb and Ivestor Gap trails, summiting Black Balsam Knob and Tennent Mountain. It’s a sun-drenched, blueberry and blackberry-filled adventure over two bald mountains to some incredible views.” The 5.1 mile roundtrip hike is rated moderate. Weather can change quickly especially at these elevations so come prepared and bring plenty of water and food. After the hike we can visit the hanging bog at Wolf Mt. overlook along the BRP.

DIRECTIONS: We will meet at 8:00 at the parking area on the Art Loeb Trail trailhead, located halfway down Black Balsam Knob Road from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Do not go all the way to the end of the road! Look for the NCNPS sign at the parking area. Parking can fill up quickly, so you may want to come a little early to get a spot!

15 – Saturday – NCNPS COASTAL FALL TRIP – Details coming later on the NCNPS webpage.
